Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) is out for Week 4 against the Lions.
Tyler Eifert managed to secure 3-of-4 targets for 69 yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Chiefs.
Andy Dalton spread the ball around in this one, with Mohamed Sanu as the unlikely receiving yardage leader for the Bengals. Cincinnati has enough passing-game weapons this season that Eifert's fantasy owners need to prepare themselves for some week-to-week ups and downs. Eifert will remain a mid-range TE1 play when the Bengals face the Seahawks in Week 5.
Redskins TE Jordan Reed is being evaluated for a concussion.
Reed was forced from Week 4 against the Eagles after taking a knee to the helmet late in the fourth quarter. Reed has a long history of concussions going back to college and missed the final six games of 2013 after suffering two concussions in three weeks. Reed caught 5-of-8 targets for 37 yards before leaving the game.
A.J. Green secured 7-of-10 targets for 82 yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Chiefs.
Green made his lone big play of the game on an early 36-yard bomb down the left sideline, ending the first quarter with five catches for 73 yards on five targets. Unfortunately, the Bengals slow played the game the rest of the way nursing a big lead, while Kansas City settled for a whopping seven field goals. Green will remain an every-week WR1 entering a Week 5 date with Richard Sherman's Seahawks.
Marvin Jones managed one catch for four yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Chiefs.
He was targeted twice. Because Jones is behind A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert in the Bengals' passing-game pecking order, he will struggle for consistent week-to-week production. Mohamed Sanu also chipped in 84 yards on four catches in Week 4. Jones will be a WR4/5 against the Seahawks in Week 5.
Mohamed Sanu caught 4-of-6 targets for 84 yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Chiefs.
Sanu was the Bengals' receiving yardage leader on a day where Andy Dalton spread the ball around, and game flow prevented Cincinnati from racking up second-half pass attempts. Sanu's big play was a 52-yard gain where he lined up in the slot and piled up yardage after catch on a slant route. Behind A.J. Green, Marvin Jones, Tyler Eifert, and Gio Bernard in the Bengals' pecking order for targets, Sanu isn't worth rostering in fantasy leagues entering a Week 5 date with the Seahawks.
Jonathan Stewart rushed 10 times for 50 yards in Carolina's Week 4 win over the Bucs.
Stewart wasn't targeted in the passing game. Today was the first time all season J-Stew has cleared five yards per carry, but his 50 yards were a 2015 low. Stewart has been a major disappointment thus far, failing to clear 62 yards on the ground while scoring zero total touchdowns. With 25 percent of the year in the books, he's on pace for only 880 yards rushing, and 20 catches. We can't say the former will pick up based on how Stewart has been running. He'll be a middling RB2 when the Panthers came off their bye in Week 6 against the Seahawks.
Jeremy Hill rushed nine times for 40 yards, three touchdowns, and a two-point conversion in the Bengals' 36-21 win over the Chiefs in Week 4.
The Bengals are now 4-0 with a game versus Seattle on deck. For the fourth straight week, Hill got the start at tailback. He ended Cincinnati's opening drive with an eight-yard touchdown run, and later capitalized on Travis Kelce's lost fumble for a third-quarter TD. Hill's third touchdown occurred on a goal-line run in the fourth quarter, putting Cincinnati up 36-18. Hill still finished with only nine touches, compared to Gio Bernard's 13. Still always a solid bet for short-yardage touchdowns week to week, Hill will be an RB2 against the Seahawks in Week 5. Albeit with fumble-induced bumps in the road, Hill has five touchdowns through four games. Only on pace for 660 yards from scrimmage, Hill's yardage is sure to rise the rest of the way.
